Transfering your Wii Mii to your 3DS is a ‘one way transfer’

Nintendo confirmed today that when the Nintendo 3DS comes out in March, you will be able to transfer your existing Miis from your Wii straight to your Nintendo 3DS.

However it is apparently impossible for a user to transfer a Mii from the 3DS to the home console.

Connectivity has always been popular with Nintendo, connecting the Gameboy Advance and the DS with their home consoles for what ever reason. However in terms of the 3DS, there is a lack of interoperability with the Wii. Transferring your Mii seems to be the only connection feature.

The reason for the inability to transfer vice versa to the Wii was explained by NAO product marketing manager, Bill Trinen. “Its a one way transfer,” He said.

“You can transfer your Miis from your Wii to your 3DS. But because the Mii maker on the Nintendo 3DS is a more robust program and has newer features, like hair styles and eyes and things like that, the Miis you create there can’t go back to the Wii.”

The main reason that people would actually want to transfer Miis from the 3DS of course is the 3DS Mii makers ability to automatically create new avatars by taking pictures. Without this feature on the Wii, you would be going through a rather lengthy process to create your double in the form of a Mii.

Bill Trinen mentioned no other form of connectivity that is to come with the 3DS. “Beyond that, that’s the only Wii connectivity we’ve talked about.”
